I know that I promised you part two of my Parisian wardrobe adventure… that is coming, I promise. I wanted to take a brief interlude as I was so excited to receive my latest slogan jumper from Joanie Clothing. To be honest, this may be the start of a growing addiction.
When Joanie Clothing reached their second birthday earlier this month, they released a jumper for each day of the week. I was beyond excited to see that the Friday jumper referenced a song by The Cure. Just in case you didn’t know, my husband Chris is one of the biggest Cure fans living – along with our dear friend Janie Webber, he used to write, Xerox, and post a fanzine called Cure News across the world to keep fans in touch with the band, pre-internet. You can read all about this and see some adorable pictures from a previous blog post by clicking here.
For all of my Cure family who know this story and love the band, please see the Vendredi Friday Slogan Jumper!

Woven from the softest fabric, this may be a bit of a departure for my Cure family as it is not black BUT it is navy, with the slogan embroidered in a pink so pale that it is off white. I think that this is a classy combo which make it very easy to dress for those everyday ‘normal’ situations where we need to be functioning, recovering goths such as at work or when hanging out with non-Cure fans.
Joanie Clothing offer worldwide delivery so you can have this sent to wherever you are for whenever you need to wear a little Cure reference but cannot get away with an official T-shirt! Rock this jumper in the office, paired with the Pocket Pencil Skirt in navy flannel from Vivien of Holloway (RRP £59, click here for details) and claret accessories to highlight the pink. C’est chic.
Or just wear it to roll around amongst your Cure records. I know that you will.
Also, can we all just take a minute to appreciate this incredibly thoughtful detail. As a cat owner, I’ve had plenty of threads pulled but never a repair kit!
The Vendredi Friday Slogan Jumper is one of eight days of the week designs by Joanie Clothing. Yes, there are eight days a week… click here to look at the rest of the range on offer.
I’ve already put in a request for a range of David Bowie inspired designs for all of the Bowie fans out there. If you could have a song lyric emblazoned across your chest, what would you choose?
